Mission Statement

The College of Nursing seeks to support and empower students of all ages and ethnic groups to address the health care needs and issues of the people in Texas, the nation and the world through acquiring nursing knowledge and leadership skills for entry level, advance practice and scientific roles by integrating health promotion and disease prevention with diverse groups in a time of rapid technological and societal change.

Statement of Philosophy

The College of Nursing at Texas Woman's University offers a diverse multi campus setting and awards degrees at the Baccalaureate, Master's and Doctoral levels. This philosophy is congruent with the mission of the university and its commitment to prepare students for leadership and service built on a solid liberal education base and quality professional programs. It is consistent with the fundamental beliefs about nursing and nursing’s contract with society as described by the American Nurses Association in Nursing's Social Policy Statement (2010). The preparation of nurses for service and leadership is guided by the current AACN Essentials of Nursing (2008, 2011) and the Texas Board of Nursing Differentiated Essential Competencies for the Baccalaureate degree.
